  • Is This A Sin?

     

    I have been wondering this for a long time and would NEVER ask anyone like my pastor or anyone who probably would have an answer but how do you all feel about masturbation? And is this considered a sin? Do any of you know where this might be found in the bible?

    but how do you all feel about masturbation
    My feeling is there is nothing shameful about my body or self love. I love myself and if I choose to masturbate, then I will and I am confident God does not have a problem with it. My views about God are not dated in the rock ages and my love and appreciation God isn't fear based. The God I serve, there is nothing but love, compassion and understanding. And with that love, I have better learned to love and respect myself and to love and respect others. Once all the fear, anger, shame and all those other man conceived emotions were let go, the serenity and peace that came with knowing I serve a God who loves and understands me as a human being, since after all He did creat me, is priceless.

    **This is my opinion and the way I live my life. You are walking your own individual spiritual path. Do what is best for you based on your life and experiences and what you feel is best for you. No matter what you do, God loves for you will remain the same.

    God bless sis

    The Catholic Church said it was wrong and all ChrisTankpenkaOs believed it. But in reality, masturbation is not found anywhere in teh bible. And the Torah, our first books in the bible is open to all forms of sexuality and sensuality. It is not discussing but completely natural and human nature!

    so if you want to, enjoy it guilt free...

    I have been wondering this for a long time and...

    Alright, good topic. Although the Bible does not say anything about masturbation, it does INDICATE that it's wrong. Please read Phil 4:8..."Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, .....whatsoever things are PURE....think on these things". (I'm paraphrasing for lack of space) GalaTankpenkaOs 5:16-26 basically talks about not fulfilling the lust of the flesh, crucifying the flesh, living in the Spirit. There are more but let me just deal with these two.

    Now, what does one think about while masturbating? Is it pure, would Jesus be ashamed to even know what is in your mind? Since your answers would be shady to these questions then it is wrong to masturbate. You masturbate to bring pleasure to yourself; but God calls us to crucify (deny) those lusts and to think on things that are pure. Masturbation is a one-man/woman show...that's not how God intended for us; he made male for female/female for male so when they got married they could enjoy each other. Masturbation is self-gratification contrary to what Jesus teaches; Mtt 16:24 Jesus says for us to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him. Masturbation is not denying yourself...it is giving in to yourself.

    Alright, good topic.à‚* Although the Bible does not say anything...

    When I read deny himself, I read deny our vices and there is no where it says that masturbation is a vice. We are sensual beings, sexuality is a part of us...there is no denying it. That's like saying to me, to deny my black skin?! As it is part of who I am there is nothing I can do, and so is sexuality!

    If you want an idea of how sexual the bible is. I'll give you the greatest work of erotica ever written. Song of Songs, Old Testament and extremely beautiful, tastefully erotic, with a sensuality that not even Byron can duplicate!!

    All I can say Hebrews/Jewish people know how to rock on! ChrisTankpenkaOity is so warped about sex! Don't feel bad about touching yourself if you do.

    I can tell you this. I love touching and caressing my body. I have never masturbated, but I do like the way my body feels and looks as a woman, and I am proud of who I am. And if I choose to masturbate I would. Because it is your body. You own it as of right now, and you can do as you wish. And you gratifying your body and giving it pleasure, because you need to be happy to! And that is what I see when I think of masturbation!

    Enjoy!!
